Vocational Program

The Vocational Program at Bynum School focuses on creating positive changes in the lives of young adults who need specialized educational and independent life skills training, job training, ceramics and woodshop.  Functional reading and math skills are developed and maintained through daily lessons to support employability.  Job coaches help students through all phases of the job search process then train each student at the employment setting.  A wide range of skills are taught for students to actively participate and function in various community settings.  Community-based activities may include training at the West Texas Food Bank, delivering Meals on Wheels, volunteering at Helping Hands, dining in the community, and bowling.  The Vocational Program also employs students on campus where they work and earn a paycheck in the horticulture program and in the ceramics program.
